Trump Is Screwing Up Big Time

Mister President, we've been loyal throughout the good times and the bad but you are really screwing up here.

I can understand the desire for just a little positive coverage for a change but this is getting into alienating your base territory.

President Trump is signaling an openness to the idea of raising the minimum age for purchasing certain firearms in the wake of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., where a 19-year-old is accused of killing 17 teachers and students with an AR-15 rifle.

A White House source told Fox News that Trump is open to a number of measures to address mass shootings, including supporting a rise in the minimum age for owning certain firearms – a proposal that could face resistance from gun rights groups, like the National Rifle Association.

According to the Giffords Law Center, which tracks gun laws and advocates for more restrictions, licensed firearm dealers under federal law cannot sell handguns to people under 21 and cannot sell long guns to people under 18. Some state laws already impose stricter minimum age requirements.

It’s not clear if Trump would seek changes to federal laws, the source said, or if he would advocate for a change at the state level.

The vast majority of our soldiers are under 21 years of age.  Not only are they now too young to drink but will soon be too young to use their own fucking weapons. 

Mister President, Fox is owned by Rupert Murdoch and he has always been pro-gun control.  You are alienating your base.  The Cucks who are lining up to give you a few strokes for this are not your base.

This is moving into the realm of "unforced error".
